    Hello everyone. A long-time friend whose son's mother-in-law wants to give up sewing and get rid of all of her fabrics........do you see where this is going? Yes, the two of us have been blessed with a stash that will take us a year to use. We are planning to make charity quilts for Project Linus and our county's battered women's center. I washed and iron 36 yards this afternoon and this is barely a start in empty several tubs of fabric. Seems this lady would find a focus fabric and then purchase 2 yards of at least 3 other coordinating fabrics. Somehow the materials would get folded together and put aside, never to see the light of a sewing machine. Oh my, we are both overwhelmed at this point but we can see 40 x 60 quilts mounting. Just as soon as I get my granddaughter's wall hanging quilted, I am going to dig into these beautiful fabrics.
